Offering to financially help the boy she said, “If he wants to go to college, I’d love to help.”
Impressed by the boy’s actions, the Anaconda hit maker said that every boy should do the same thing for his mother.

“The protection was on deck in the form of that boy as God already knew that she’d be attacked that day,” she added.
